    Collections of works of art. I like impressionists.

    When you get tired of reading: puzzles, checkers, cards, chess, board games.

    The Hunger Games
    The Hobbit
    The Lord of The Rings
    Anything by Steinbeck
    for kids The Series of Unfortunate Events

    The above in addition to many already mentioned. I am a firm believer that one can never have enough books.

    If you'd want to be constantly reminded about the apocalypse I would reread

    day-by-day Armageddon (J.L Bourne) or The Remaining (D.J. Molles).

    LOTR Is a must
    Probably Harry potter just because its lengthy and I've never gotten around to it.

    The Hunger games, were good
    The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin. yes
    Game of Thrones

    You can never go wrong with cookbooks.
